Rated 2 out of 5 by MWKL TRICKED by hotel staff
I told the porter and doorman twice that I take Air Asia and that's another airport and have them told the taxi driver specifically, but at the end I was still taking to the wrong airport that cos me panic and risk of missing my flight since they are 20KM apart! If I get a taxi by myself I will be on high alert! but since I trust the hotel staff which not just one but two! I thought can let my guard down!
the other trivia include:
1. didn't ask my newspaper preference which other SPG hotel usually would especially Westin chain
2. there is welcome treats but the staffs are sloppy enough n forgot, until I chase
3. OK got the treats which are walnut and cashew nuts, but the walnut tasted like they are expired...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lyss Executive club room experience
Spent two nights at executive club room, love the happy hour food and drinks. Enjoyed the buffet breakfast at the Living room very much too, however I wish there would be more variety, it could get a bit boring for guests staying more than 1 night.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Edwin12345 This hotel need more improvement
This hotel need improvement on the air-con system. My room air-con is very warm and need to be rectified by the technician. It shouldn't happen in a 5-star hotel.
Further, no free wifi for SPG complimentary stay.
Nevertheless, this hotel is nice to stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Victor25 Nice Hotel; A little difficult to find from the Metro
It's a nice western style hotel. The gym is really good, the staff is quite friendly. Somewhat difficult to find as I had just traveled 20 hours from NYC, and the only information from the website is that its right off the metro. I needed to ask several people as to where to go (and several did not know). The room was clean, and I had a nice view of the Petronas Tower.
But the one thing I don't understand is why WiFi is not complimentary? As I travel throughout Asia, I am finding more and more boutique hotels have free wifi, and the room/ amenities have been on par with that of SPG hotels, but with a lower price and internet service. I am getting more and more inclined to choose boutique hotels over SPG here in Asia.

Lovely hotel in a great location close to the Pavillion shopping centre, KLCC Suria and some excellent restaurants. Staff are always very welcoming and made us feel at home. We love reading each staff's "Passion" which makes you feel like a big family rather than just another guest! The breakfast buffet is just amazing! This is our third visit and we would definately return again.

Rated 1 out of 5 Disappointment inWestin KL
I enjoy staying at Starwood properties - but this was a disappointment. From the moment I arrived in the lobby and waited, and waited, and waited to check in. The room itself was OK - but the service was disappointing when you are in the lobby, waiting for a pre-booked car - or even trying to find the breakfast area. Also disappointed with the breakfast...the food stations were scattered across a very large floor space and it literally took 10 minutes to asesmble breakfast - and then another 5 to get some coffee.

Westin KL is one of our favourite Westin Hotels in Asia. The location is fantastic, the staff has a can do attitude and the restaurant - Five Senses served the best Peking Duck in Asia, bar none.
We love the breakfast at the Living Room. Its like walking into a Hawker Centre with daily changes of offering from the Indian, Malay and Chinese Noodle cuisine. The fresh fruit juice and the yoghurt selection were special touches. If there is a negative, it has to be the dearth of local tropical fruits like Papaya and Jackfruit, in favour of imported European fruits. Coming from Australia, we were looking forward to the tropical fruits.
We were a party of 4 adults and 3 children. The kids loved the pool and plentiful of pastries and pancakes for breakfast. The staff fussed over them.

The verity of food was excellent however the hot dishes at breakfast were not hot. This was everyday over our stay.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Immersian It was alright.
Although a nice hotel, we found the room to be a little dated. For the price paid, there are other hotels which can rival The Westin in terms of facilities and comfort. But the hotel does excel because of its proximity to local shopping attractions and also for its Heavenly Bed. But for some others, may not be enough.

Rated 3 out of 5 by mac123 good location and service but rooms needs refurbishment
As mentioned in my feedback form left with the front-desk, the service given by staff and especially those at the executive club floor was very good. However, I was very disappointed with the level of cleanliness of the room upon check-in. This is despite one of your staff responding to my email to ensure that my upgraded room to the executive floor would be a good one. You can see the layer of dust on the table, lamp etc, in crevices of the cabinet which needs fixing (cabinet door was loose/slanted). This gives me the impression that customer's feedback/requests are not taken seriously at all, and that the rooms have not been inspected to meet the expectations required for a 5 star hotel. The heavenly bed did not meet expectations either as the thick pillows doesn't seem to fit well with the soft bed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lim88 Staff quality has to be improved
Front desk staff should brief the guests about hotel facilities, eg gym, pool, dining area etc. They could have done better.
Awesome breakfast, love their gym facilities and yoga class.
I cant find other hotel who cares about healthy lifestyle of their guests so much! well done!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Victor Fantastic hospitality & great service!
When I arrived at Westin in KL, I was met with a huge crowd of guests checking in/out; even the SPG Gold counter had 3 guests.
While waiting in line, I was greeted by Puvan (Manager on Duty) and he offered to help me with my check in.
I was pleasantly surprised with the gesture and to top it all up, I was given an upgrade to a suite!
Puvan actually turned what could have been a bad experience with check in for me to a outstanding one.
What more can I say but THANKS Puvan!

Rated 3 out of 5 Improvements needed!
- Friendly staff at front desk
- Clean room
- Very comfortable bed
- SPG Recognition
- Directions from car park to lobby misleading. Resulting in us using the staff elevator.
- No clear directions from front desk (place to verify parking ticket) to car park.
- No noise insulation in room, can clearly hear doors banging and people walking on hallway.
- Housekeeping staff to be aware of guest duration of stay and to improve on command of English.

Rated 4 out of 5 by KK1965 Excellent Service
Great front desk staff, and on my last visit one of your front desk manager (I assume she is a manager due to her seniority) went out of her way to make me feel welcome. Your "express service" staff was also great - polite, efficient and called me after I placed my room service order to ensure that the food has arrived and all is well. Made me feel right at home!
Only down side (and nothing to do with service): your basin taps are positioned too low/close to the basin which makes it hard to wash my hands, not to mention the (water) spray pattern results in splatters everywhere on the sink!

Rated 3 out of 5 by rgrantjr21 Not soundproof and need hot water
It wasn't what I would expect from a Westin. It took forever to get hot water in the shower and when it finally came, it would fluctuate between really hot and warm. As for outside noise, I'm not sure what was going on outside, but it sounded like a construction crew. The beep beep beep of the reverse, etc. Hard to get a full night's sleep.

My wife & I spent a private weekend in the Exec Apt. tower in a spacious suite with lounge/kitchenette, a separate small workdesk room, & an enclosed (so with air conditioning) balcony with a table setting for relaxing (reading/enjoying a cuppa). Great friendly staff service from reception to lounge, doormen. Well fitted fitness room. Exec lounge offers wines, snacks & other bevs. & good breakfast.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jll888 Nice Hotel with Great Location
The hotel was surrounded by the famous shopping mall. The Pavillion is just opposite the hotel which is very convenient. Down side is the street is famous with traffic jam. So if you travel here by car, be prepare to spend some time in the car. The Bukit Bintang Monorail station is 500m away. Would suggest to take the monorail if you want to avoid the traffic.
We have been upgraded to Suite Room obtain from SPG Platinum Member benefit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by joey Excellent service and great location
Excellent Platinum recognition with room upgrades and lounge access. Service by all staff outstanding (checkin, doorman, lounge service, cleaning staff). Only thing I would suggest is that charges for local calls be waived (or included in the room charge / part of preferred rate) or a one-time charge versus a per minute charge. I had some meetings in my hotel and charges for dialing a local number seemed to cheapen the experience.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Eddie Concierge failed me
Concierge told me that the taxi I booked could get me inside the F1 circuit car park and hence, I paid a premium for the service. When I was going to board the taxi on the actual day, I was told that the taxi in fact can only drop me off outside the circuit. Duty manager was unable to do anything. Wanted the GM to call me on Mon but he never did. Totally disappointing and a terrible experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KelvinT Late-shift Front Staffs May Need More Rest
The staffs here, especially those at Executive Club Lounge, are excellent. Except one front staff I met on Monday morning (around 1:00 AM). The key card was good for elevator but could not open room door so I went all the way down to ground floor. He asked for verification, which is normal, but I gave wrong birthdate. He still let me through but looked super annoyed. Perhaps need more rest? :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by Happy The executive club was excellent
The suite we had was awesome and the gentleman who checked us in on the executive floor on the night we arrived at 9.30pm was extremely help and made us feel at home. Wish I could remember is name he was extremly helpful every time to saw him. All the staff were very friendly however he went the extra mile. Prego restuarant was excellent and the food was awesome especially the salted sea bass.
